TDN Connect, a new multi-faceted virtual program offered by The Disability Network, is designed to help people learn new independent living skills by inviting them to participate in recreation and leisure programs completely online. The program kicked-off late last year with virtual cooking classes but has expanded for 2021.
On January 28, 2021, The Disability Network cosigned a letter to the state, along with the other centers for independent living across the state, to advocate for vaccine priorities. The entirety of the letter can be found below.
The past year presented several challenges for The Disability Network, our consumers, and our partners. COVID-19 created a unique set of obstacles, and social justice issues across the country raised ever-present concerns for a strong community continually striving for equity.
Despite the barriers caused by COVID, TDN adapted services and approaches to ensure consumers could receive our five core services.
The Disability Network will be launching a campaign this year featuring our very own community. The campaign will feature local residents with disabilities sharing their own stories with pride and in their own words. Disabilities are more than we think.
Though events and service work may be different this year, there are still many ways to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday, January 18th.
We asked The Disability Network staff to name a few of their favorite things (and people) here at TDN. We will be sharing these stories and photos all way into 2021.
Local residents can now learn recipes from the safety of their homes and connect with others while social distancing. The Disability Network will be offering adaptive cooking classes online starting in December. Classes can be accessed by computer, tablet, or phone.
The Disability Network is launching a new temporary ramp program in response to COVID-19 funded by the Community Foundation of Greater Flint.
Six artists participated in The Disability Network’s fall art class held at The Flint Institute of Arts. Expressions Inclusive Art Class, which concluded in late-October, gave students experience with oil pastels, pottery, and acrylic paint over four sessions.
